OK. It is a bracer made of 1.5 mm stainless
steel. It is 14 ga. Test performed with rebated tournament sword. Weight of the sword is about 1.1 kg. It is about 2.5 lbs. So you can see results. I feel fine, steel
bracer and thin gambeson fully absorbs the energy of the hit. Now we will try to repair the bracer. It takes
several minutes. You can see that etched
pattern looks almost like new. We did this video to show that etched armor
is fully functional and can be repaired same to regular flat metal armor and looks great
after it. Hard block was shown in this video to show maximum possible damage.
